past 20 states in job creation and turned a deficit into a rainy day fund. whether in public office or private business, i did not ask people what party they belong to. i asked them what ideas they brought to the table. as the governor, i met with leaders of both parties to find common ground. that is what i will do as president, and i will start on day one. on my first day of office, i will send five bills to office and signed five executive orders. everyone of them will help us create jobs. that is just the start of my plan to create 12 million jobs in my first term alone. every piece of legislation and every executive order will help us achieve five important goals. first, to achieve north american energy independence by 2020. second, to make sure students and workers have the skills they need to succeed. third, we will promote trade that works for america and cut down on countries like china when they cheat. fourth, we will cut the deficit from day one and balance our budget within 10 years. finally, we will champion our small businesses, of the engine of job creation in this co
, indeed, the government of i said i can't is very concerned about the fiscal deficit situation and the finance minister unveiling the consolidation plan, something that hasn't gone on particularly well with the markets because they're not willing to believe the fiscal map. let's talk about what the government intendses to close fy 13 with. the budgeted number 5.1, saying there will be a slippage, but they hope to contain to 5.3%. most estimates peg the fiscal deficit numberner from 5.7 to 5.9%. but as i said, the finance minister coming out all guns blazing and saying it cannot be a business as usual promise. the tough decidings will need to be taken. they are talking about the decisions on the taxation front. they hope to divest the government's share holding. the spectrum sale should give them another strengthening rupee will bring down their import subsidy especially as far as oil sub s citydyes are concerninged. so the government at this point in time is clear, they're also sending out a message to the reserve bank of india. it announces its mop taker poli policy, they feel
. to cut the deficit.... >> ryssdal: doh! >> congressman rehberg, cut the waste first. we need a balanced approach. >> ryssdal: deficit, right? that's cut the deficit. >> cut the deficit. >> ryssdal: so they didn't say "vote for," they didn't say rehberg for... or tester for congress, but they did say the word "deficit." >> they did say the word "deficit." >> ryssdal: bang-- that's an issue ad. >> that's an issue ad. >> ryssdal: okay, really? >> by the magic word test, that would be an issue advocacy ad. now you and i both know that this ad is aired during an election cycle and is intended to help jon tester. >> ryssdal: i wanted to know more about the group that made this ad. because you can't tell much from its name-- citizens for strength and security fund. so i went to their website and here's what i learned. they're a 501c4, social welfare group. they're an issues advocacy group-- they tell me that a couple of times. but that's it. there's no people listed, there's no address listed, there's no phone number listed. they make it really hard to find out who they are. the only way we kn
for a trillion dollar deficit for the last four years. the largest, fastest that increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years. with respect to cut cabin balance it's amazing to me also that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have, and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force the congress to set priorities and stop funding things like cylinder solyndra and prioritize like social security, medicare and education and that's why i support the balanced budget to the constitution. >> i especially like watching the gavel-to-gavel coverage. it is really only the place to get the real deal and i also enjoy newsmakers and the book programs i like that the commentary is only intended to let you know what is going on and there isn't really much analysis. they're certainly isn't an opinion, and i appreciate how i can really see through and understand the programming itself and i can get my analysis elsewhere. if you want to see how your gov
to the biggest budget deficit in 2008. >> so you believe the senate is doing their job? >> i think that they did the right thing in the budget control act. this includes revenue and going after these tax loopholes. the politicians who signed the pledge to the lobbyists grover norquist -- >> i will give you 60 seconds to respond. >> sitting around your kitchen tables you can't go three months without managing your finances. you can't go three weeks without managing the budget for your small business. but he and other career politicians have gone three years since they passed a budget. he talks about the budget control act. if you are watching this, think for a second. do you have the budget control act in your small business? this is washington speak. we manage our small business with the budget. but these politicians to think that they can live by different set of rules. after you've been there 20 years i think this is what happens. i support the proposal this is, no budget, no pay. >> this is a good sound bite but it doesn't get us to where we need to be. we passed the budget that does to the b
and that there are -- i mean, in past budget deficits, big budget deals, there have been efforts made, successful efforts to either expand or protect low income programs. so it is possible to do without putting at risk the most vulnerable, the major deficit reduction packages of 1990, 1993 and 1997 all protect programs for low income americans as did the bowles-simpson proposal that was under consideration last summer that pushed out, that created the sequester. the resolution of which created the sequester and the current cliff that we're looking at. so i guess i would say i don't disagree that these programs are at risk, but it's important to know that lots of people are working to protect them, and that it is, certainly, these are not programs that are contributing to the long-term fiscal problems in the country, and so there's no reason why they can't be protected as part of the resolution. >> just to clarify, um, while the big programs like snap are not subject to sequester, you know, lie heap, wic which is the special nutrition program for women, infants and children, head start, there are a number
with some ideological policies that have been proven not to work, blow a hole in budget deficit, the economy collapses? i would like to ask -- if these policies that they want to implement are so great why didn't they work in the last 10 years? we have a lot more information in our society today. that was not that long ago when we experienced almost a complete economic collapse. the president has been able to help dig us out of the whole and get us moving in the right direction. there is a jobs bill that any economist who is being objective about it said we ill create over a million new jobs. get some money into the road and bridge projects that we need done in this country. make sure local governments are not laying off police, fire, and teachers. let's move the economy forward and create jobs. make investments into the new energy sector, research and development so we can create the jobs of the future. so places like ohio can keep going with what it is that we have been doing and build on the auto industry and build on the steel industry and get into the new economies. we are hitting a roa
in castleville, utah. you know, the biggest issue we're facing in this country is the debt and deficit. we have to solve this, and i think orrin and i would both agree, we have to go back and make some very challenging cuts. now, i've always supported the simpson-bowles. i believe that is the beginning that we have to implement it. but, ladies and gentlemen, if we don't fix this debt and deficit, your future and my future and more importantly our children and our grandchildren will be at such a challenge, they'll never enjoy the blessings and benefits that we've had in this country. i believe that we have to immediately implement changes, and one of the things is to look at our defense carefully. when we spend $300 million a day, we can no longer afford that. we have to go through and do a performance review on each and every department within the federal government to insure that we're getting effective, efficient government and that technology is used in order to give the return on taxpayers, something that hasn't happened for the last 36 years. >> moderator: senator hatch. hatch: well, i app

the payment of tax grants. the move comes as it looks increasingly unlikely to pass a bill to issue deficit covering bonds. the main opposition parties are against it. the bonds are necessary to implement the budget. government officials say they could run out of money by the end of november unless it's passed. it was scheduled on friday to allocate $27 billion to prefectures and $24 billion to municipalitie municipalities. some tax grants due in september have already been deferred. people in cash strapped municipalities can expect the latest delay to expect financing and disrupt public services. that's all for me for now. i'll leave you with the markets this tuesday here in asia. >>> the discussion included disputed islands in the south china sea. they agree to continue talks to establish a declaration of conduct with their will to resolve the issue peacefully. countries have been asking china to agree to a legal biding code of conduct governing behavior in the disputed region. they have failed to reach substantial progress over the issue. china has been reluctant to establish a code of c

first order of business is going to be to get our deficits and debt under control. and the good thing is is that there's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at the end of the year. we know that we've got the sequester looming that's taking a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. and after the election, i think that both democrats and republicans have to step back and say, you know what? this is something that the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. we've already made a tril dolli dollars worth of cuts. we can make cuts. look at how to deal with health care cots under medicare and medicare in a speeerious way, b we're going to also need revenue. we kind of settle on the big question, how much government are we going to have, and how are we going to pay for it, then a lot of the other stuff falls into place. >> can you get medicare done? >> i think we can. >> because republicans demagogue it. democrats demagogue it. everybody's demagogued it through the years. can you go to the republicans and say, guys, we'
and the deficit, the president's proposal was more realistic and it would have less of a shock to the system in the country and lead -- in that it would balance spending cuts. we like is more balanced approach to energy. we are in favor of obamacare. the editorial board was in favor of a public option so it did not go far enough for us. on social issues, immigration reform, women's rights, birth control, the editorial board aligns more with the president's policies. that is where we came down. we said that the voters are being asked by both candidates to take a leap of faith. given what we know about the previous four years, we decided that it was going to be an easier but to go with the president for four more. host: how many times have you seen president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill
and deficit. we are going to have to ask some tough questions, and we cannot be playing politics. we have to have are robust plan. i would say around 4 trillion dollars closer to five trillion dollars, and there is a lot of work being done on this. i hope during a lame-duck we get a great start on it, because it is a huge issue for jobs. it is a huge issue for this country. ireland, greece, these are canaries in a mine shaft, and we need to move forward with a good policy that will impact a whole country and do it in a responsible way to move our economy forward, and that is the number one issue we need to work on to move our country forward. >> i thank you for the question. what i introduced was a balanced budget requirement for the federal government, but the first piece of legislation i will sponsor was to repeal obamacare. we need to put that money back into medicare. we cannot afford that. i would be proud to carry the legislation as i was proud to carry the legislation to fund obamacare, i would be proud to support legislation to repeal obamacare. >> speaking about president obama,
, asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more. so we could reduce our deficit and invest in the skills and ideas of our people. and you know, at the time the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney vote -- they said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. does that sound familiar? that's what they said. it turns out their math was just as bad back then as it is now. because -- because by the end of bill clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and a incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so wisconsin, we know what ideas work. we know our ideas work. and we know that their ideas don't work. we know it. and the reason we know it is we just tried it a few years ago. after bill clinton was out of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an ec
it into deficit by imposing the bush tax cuts that were temporary, including millionaires. what governor romney is proposing -- let's return to those policies, the eight years of george bush. and continue to give tax breaks to the wealthy. loudoun responded in 2008. also when president obama took office in january of 2009, we were losing over 700,000 jobs a month. 700,000 jobs a month we were losing when george bush left office and president barack obama came into office. we will hear tomorrow the new jobs report, we are creating over 100,000 jobs. 5.2 million new jobs during this barack obama president's see, under 8% unemployment rate -- during this barack obama presidency. 32 months of the private sector job growth. you compare that to where we were when bush left office and the president took office. that is a remarkable improvement. that is the pathway to recovery , and president obama has been leading that. this is no time to change course and go back to -- we don't know what we will be getting with governor romney. he was governor of massachusetts. rounding achievement was mandatory heal
, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more so that we can reduce the deficit and make investment in education, research, and guess what? a bunch of folks running for congress at the time said this is going to hurt the economy. this is going to kill job creation. if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates has to be running for president right now. it turns out his bath at their math was just as bad back that as it is now. -- then as it is now. by the end of bill clinton's second term, americans created 23 million new jobs. poverty was doubt and the deficit became the biggest surplus in history. colorado, we know the ideas. we know that our ideas work. we also know those that don't work. eight years after bill clinton left office. his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax breaks they did not need. companies enjoy tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas and insured that oil companies and wall street were given free rein. folks got to play by different set of rules than the rest of us. the result was falling in comes and record deficits and
to help the middle class. [applause] we know what is going to grow jobs, reduce the deficit. and let me tell you, what governor romney is offering eight it. it is not it. giving more power back to the biggest banks is not changed. leaving millions without health insurance, that is not changed. . a another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy, that is not change. [applause] refusing to answer questions about the details of your policies -- not change. rolling out a compromise by pledging the tea party's agenda, us. good luck to you. guest: thank you. host: a want to point to an editorial in bloomberg. that cannot from michael bloomberg, the mayor of new york. he writes that he votes for president to lead on climate change. he says the climate is changing how the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in new york city may or may not be the result it should compel all elected leaders to take action. governor bloomberg rates we need leadership from the white house. president obama has taken major steps to reduce our current consumption, including higher fuel efficiency stand
the hurricane and who took a $300 million surplus and left us with a $1 billion deficit, or you can choose me. i would like to go to washington to lead the fight to reduce spending and regulations and do things to grow this economy. i would appreciate your vote. >> i am not a politician. this is a little bit uncomfortable. i am a businessman and chairman of my local council. the negativity that has consumed this campaign bothers me. cynthia, i am tired of your criticism of old, wealthy white man. he went beyond the pale when you accuse angus king of the allied air. charlie, i am tired of your commercials ruining all of my favorite shows on abc. you do not think angus is responsible for a lot of terrible things. as an voter and citizen of maine, i will ask you to stop your attacks for the next hour. if you do not do any attacks for the next hour, i pledge to give two checks for $5,000 a piece to the charity of your choice. this will prove that you will put maine first. >> now that you know a little bit about each of our candidates tonight, we will move right to our questions. there are a lot of i

women cannot be wonderful mothers. of course they can. are their role deficits and what happens to the flourishing of children? the answer is yes. no matter what the cause, you have had a divergence between working middle-class america and upper-middle-class america that so transcends anything having to do with a share in comcome inequality and unless we come to grips with that change we're going to be stuck on dead center. >> that is a pretty dynamic example of marriage. is this something government can do to restore marriage as an institution? do we need to? >> i think to understand the phenomenon that you're talking about, and it is a very important one. you have to understand the related cultural phenomenon. you have to prove she women's occupational upgrading and accomplishments and the earnings advances which of gone in a completely different direction than in. men's wages for a middle and low-income has stagnated in fallen while women's hats and evidently gone up. about the middle as well. i am not saying that there are not lots of women facing tough problems in the job m
that are really hurting today in this country. and we fa this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat. i' done it before, i'll do itin again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. >>> a lot of kids out there watching with their parents tonight, remembering last year this time, there was a snowstorm. sam, is halloween ruined again this year? >> reporter: david, i'm standing here looking at the path, the expected track of this storm, that by wednesday is in western new york state, by friday, it's all the way up to maine and also canada, so, anywhere from michigan to maine, to virginia, from wednesday all the way through thursday and into friday, we're still seeing the affects of this storm, daichd, so, it's not the best in those areas, certainly. >> all right, abc's sam champion is going to be on this all night long. first thing in the morning, the entire

a question. look, the biggest issue that faces the country is the debt and deficit. we're going to have to make tough discussions. those decisions can't be played politics with is your first question talked about jay. we have to have a big robust plan, i would around $4 to $5 closer to $5 trillion that takes in to account everything. it there are a lot of templates. i could list them. the fact there's a lot of work being done with this. i hope during the lame duck we gate a great start. it's a huge issue for jobs and the future of the current. these are canary in the mine shaft. we need move forward with a good policy that will impact not only montana but the whole country. do it in a responsible way to move our economy guard. that is really the number one issue we need to be working on once this election is over. it should be -- it's being worked on as we speak too. >> moderator: congressman ray bergs. rehberg: thank you. the first piece of legislation i passed was a balance budget requirement for the federal government. the first piece of legislation is whatever it takes to repeal oba
, it is our deficit. it is $16.20 trillion today. at the first debate it was $16 trillion. i agree with heidi, we cannot have partisan politics. the way we saw this is we have a budget. the senate has not had a budget for three years. that is where the partisanship come said. if we are on to solve a small business problem, the first step is you need a budget. harry reid has refused to bring a budget up for three years. we cannot solve this budget problem that alone ballots at if we cannot have the senate majority leader, to my opponent has endorsed to try to work out a solution. this is the most critical thing, and here is how we saw that -- number 1, we need a budget that comes to closure so people can see we are going to ballots at. we need stability in taxes and regulations, and number 4 we need an energy policy like we have done in north dakota. if we support energy, we can reignite america's engine, at the energy independence, national security, job security, and that is what we need to do. >> is interesting what congressman berg says. if you look at the time he served in the legislature
